inspiring learning beyond time ~ place ~ space


Dennis Richards

I have been a teacher, administrator and superintendent in urban and suburban schools since 1970. Now I devote my time to teaching, writing, speaking and learning. I have an undergraduate degree in English from Merrimack College and graduate degrees from Middlebury College’s Bread Loaf School of English and Harvard University’s School of Education. I am passionate about teaching and learning topics such as leadership, the right to learn, risk taking, creativity, powerful learning experiences, professional learning communities, digital age communication, universal access to education, collective intelligence, the participatory-sharing culture of the Internet and Web 2.0, global climate change and contemporary poetry. I blog at ( and at Education Week’s LeaderTalk blog (
